Chivas-Venture-will-i-am-SelfieThe United Kingdom’s Change Please is Announced as Winner of the Chivas Venture 2018 at TNW Conference in Amsterdam.

“As the Saturn Retrograde continues it slow march til the beginning of September, actions supporting positive change and empowerment will be rewarded in the short run AND in the long run. With respect to will.i.am my prediction is that the association with this philanthropic venture will balance whatever Saturn, the bringer of Karma, hurls at him this Summer.  MARIE BARGAS

Tech entrepreneur and creative innovator will.i.am was in Amsterdam tonight to help select and crown the winner of the Chivas Venture 2018 – Chivas Regal’s global competition that gives away $1 million in no-strings funding every year to the world’s most promising social startups. From 27 finalists, U.K. enterprise Change Please walked away with the greatest amount of funding, receiving $350,000following a live pitch at Europe’s leading tech festival, TNW Conference, in front of thousands of international tech enthusiasts, investors and entrepreneurs.

Change Please empowers the homeless community by training them to be baristas. The London-based startup takes the homeless off the streets and ensures they find housing within 10 days – as well as providing bank accounts and jobs paying the London Living Wage. Their coffee, served in environmentally-friendly cups, is responsibly sourced from farms that support local communities in need.

Reacting to his win, Founder of Change Please, Cemal Ezel, said:

I’m so happy  I think I’m still in shock. It’s been a hard and long journey, but to have made 26 incredible new friends from all over the world  that’s been the real highlight for me. The last four months have been amazing; I just want to give a huge thanks to Chivas.

The Global Final – hosted by BAFTA winning actor, writer, director and television presenter, Richard Ayoade – was the culmination of the fourth year of the Chivas Venture. This year’s competition attracted 2,600 entries from across the world, which were whittled down to 27 finalists all competing for a share of Chivas Regal’s $1 million fund. The judging panel – which comprised will.i.am, Founder & CEO, I.AM.PLUS; Alexandre Ricard, Chairman and CEO of Pernod Ricard – parent company of Chivas RegalSheila Herrling, Senior Fellow at The Beeck Center for Social Impact + Innovation; and Kresse Wesling MBE, Co-Founder and Director of sustainable luxury brand Elvis & Kresse – assessed each startup based on their ability to create sustainable change through a viable business model and potential to scale.

The four other finalists to receive significant funding were: Mestic from the Netherlands ($200,000) – which converts cow manure waste into biotextiles, bioplastics and biopaper; Spain’s BraiBook ($100,000) – creator of the first Braille eReader; The Picha Project from Malaysia($50,000), which supports marginalised communities through a sustainable food catering and delivery business; and change: WATER Labs from the USA($50,000) – which has developed low-cost, waterless toilets for non-sewered households and communities around the world.

A People’s Choice Award was also determined live on the night by the studio audience and over 420,000 viewers watching via the live stream – with will.i.am announcing that the public had decided to award an additional $50,000 of funding to Eric Sicart from BraiBook.

Reacting on the night, judge will.i.am said:

Thanks to the Chivas Venture were recognising a new wave of entrepreneurs that just get it. The superstars of tomorrow are founders of companies like these that are solving the worlds problems. I thank Chivas for lifting up and shining a light on social startups who are changing the world for the better.

Pernod Ricard Chairman and CEO Alexandre Ricard added:

The Chivas Venture is an initiative I am personally very proud of. More than just a competition, it brings together entrepreneurs and innovators who are having a real impact on the world, and changing the way we do business. We have given away $3 million of funding since the competition first started, and our finalists are now enriching over 1 million lives in over 40 countries across 6 continents. Thats not a bad return on investment.

Now in its fourth year, the Chivas Venture has received over 8,000 applications to date. Since the competition began in 2014, Chivas-supported startups have cut over 60 million tonnes of CO2, recycled 13,000 tonnes of waste and saved over 8 million trees and 1 million honeybee colonies. 75,000 days of education have been funded for women and girls, 24 million litres of clean drinking water have been provided, and 23,000 households now have safe energy.

Chivas believes that generosity and success go hand in hand – a belief that was inspired by founding brothers and entrepreneurs, James and John Chivas, who shared their success with the local community as their business grew. Today, through the Chivas Venture, Chivas champions likeminded entrepreneurs who want to succeed while changing the world for the better; social enterprises are invited to apply for the chance to win a share of $1 million in funding and resources as entries for the Chivas Venture 2019 open in September 2018.

The Hanuman Mantra Cure for the Saturn Retrograde starting on April 17, 2018

Hanuman1.gif

According to legend, the cheeky Hindu Monkey God, Hanuman, and the planet Saturn, otherwise known as Shani Dev, have a very interesting relationship.

  1. Both Gods are connected to Lord Shiva, the Merciful Destroyer. Hanuman is said to be the avatar of Shiva. Shani Dev or Saturn is a devotee.
  2. Hanuman was born on Saturday or Saturn’s Day.
  3. Saturn/Shani is connected to the element of fire. Hanuman is connected to the element of air. Air feeds fire.
  4. In exchange for saving Saturn/Shani from the demon Ravanna’s prison, Saturn/Shani agreed that Hanuman or his followers would not suffer in-auspiciousness.

The mantra is traditionally chanted 108 times either with or without a mala (rosary) on a Saturday. Traditional offerings are jasmine oil or flowers, vermilion and red sandalwood. During Saturn Retrograde I chant the mantra at least on Saturday AND Tuesay, or every day just to make sure.

LA Fires: In the Aftermath of the Creek Fire the Horses of the Southland Need Your Help

Los Angeles Fires 2017 News Updates: Thomas Fire Map, Animal Rescue.

The Southern California fires claim more casualties than human and property damage. According to the Daily News the toll on the environment, domestic animals and wild life is staggering.

We have not seen this number and this size of fires at least within our memories,” said Amalie Orme, a Cal State Northridge professor of geography and environmental studies who knows all about wildfire, from the “wow” to the “why” of it.

The measures of the Southern California fires’ scope are more than numerical.

There are human measures (and now equine measures). The ever-deeper toll of homes destroyed, lives disrupted, health affected (and beloved animals lost).

At least 30 horses were reported dead.

And yet, some horses were spared from the flames as an entire community pulled together to help save these beautiful creatures. Earlier this week Style Coven reported the Miracle at Gibson Ranch.

So, once again we’d like to thank CBS Reporter Kristine Lazar for pitching in with the efforts to save the horses.

Today and every day you too can lend your support whether you live close to the fires or you are a charitable soul living miles away. Support the Los Angeles Animal Care Foundation.

laca_logo“The Foundation assists the Department’s emergency response and disaster relief efforts through its Noah’s Legacy fund by providing supplies, training and equipment to support these activities. These services are critical to the communities served by the Department as it continues to rescue animals from wildfires, flooding, earthquakes and man-made disasters.

The Foundation purchased four Animal Safe trailers that provide temporary sheltering for pets whose owners are evacuated due to natural or man made disasters. These trailers are self-sustaining, with heat, air conditioning, power, water, and lighting to provide excellent care to the displaced animals. The Department stations and staffs these trailers next to Red Cross emergency sheltering sites, so pet owners are never far away from their beloved pets.

The Foundation has also sponsored training on the safe evacuation and care of horses. Due to the frequency of wildfires in southern California, the Department is regularly called upon to evacuate and provide temporary sheltering for horses from fire zone areas. The Foundation supports the Department and its volunteers in this critical and life-saving service.”

To donate please click HERE.

Noah’s Legacy Fund was established to support the Department’s emergency response efforts. These services are critical to the communities we serve as we continue to respond to the wildfires, flooding and earthquakes that can occur here.

Your support will help provide the food, shelter and medical care, and spay & neuter surgery for feline, canine, equine and all other pet residents who require shelter and care as a result of a disaster. Your support will also help us reunite these pets with the families that are searching for them and to provide this service in the future when needed.

Please consider making a special donation today to the Noah’s Legacy Fund by mailing your contribution to The Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation at P.O. Box 100515, Pasadena, CA 91189-0515 on this web site – just click on Donate and specify the Noah’s Legacy Fund in your contribution.”
